tv   CBS This Morning  CBS  July 24, 2012 7:00am-9:00am PDT

7:00 am
but first, we begin with a look at today's "eye opener," your world in 90 seconds. >> the charges on which the court found probable cause include first degree murder. >> the accused colorado gunman makes a bizarre court appearance. >> holmes appeared to be a mess. >> mr. holmes, do you have any questions? >> he did not speak and appeared dazed. >> the district attorney is not ruling out the death penalty. eight victims remain in critical condition. >> he needs to be a dad. he needs to get better. no price will repair the grievous damage inflicted by jerry sandusky on his victims. >> penn state is crippled by ncaa sanctions. >> coach joe paterno has been stripped of 100 football victories. he is no longer the winningest coach in college football history. the british army is deploying 1,200 extra troops to keep athletes and fans safe.
7:01 am
>> to rule out using chemical weapons. >> they will be held accountable, should they make the tragic mistake of using those weapons. >> not the view you want when you're sightseeing off a giant glacier. >> wow. >> i have never been this close to dying. >> just 18 months after being shot in the head, on top of the french alps with his amazing husband. speechless in seattle. ichiro is a yankee. before his first at-bat, a bow to the fans in seattle after so many years. >> all that -- >> is it hard for you to be mo nog mouse? >> no, not at 72. >> there will be a show where you talk most of the time? >> no. i'm the one that gets to talk in complete nonsense. >> i see. >> and all that matters. >> america lost one of its pioneers, sally ride. the first american woman to fly in space has died. >> liftoff and america's first woman astronaut. >> on "cbs this morning." >> nothing says god bless the usa like a beret. >> yeah.
7:02 am
welcome to "cbs this morning." the suspect in the colorado movie theater massacre is back behind bars after briefly leaving his jail cell monday for a preliminary court hearing. >> his public defender is now expected to file a motion for a mental health examination for james holmes as prosecutors prepare to charge him with killing a dozen people and injuring more than 50 others. jeff glor is in arizona. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you and good morning to viewers in the west. james holmes said nothing in court, but it wasn't what he heard. it was what everyone saw. >> committed the offense of first degree murder, which is a class one felony under colorado law. >> drooping eyes, dazed demeanor, dyed hair. the man accused of the worst shooting in american history put on one of the most bizarre displays in recent legal history. >> mr. holmes, do you have any questions about that initial
7:03 am
advisement? >> judge, we have advised mr. holmes thoroughly. >> reporter: for the first time, james holmes was in a room with relatives of the victims. seated in front, ian sullivan, father of the 6-year-old who died. and in 12 minutes of holmes 'sullen silence seemed to raise for questions about his mental state, the released picture of his mugshot did not answer them. he expects to hear final charges on monday. the victims want answer. >> i want to know why. >> she is an iraq war veteran who was hit by a bullet last friday that went through her right thigh and lodged in her left kneecap. her good friend, alex sullivan, died. she got no explanation watching on tv. >> and i don't want the lame excuse given that he's the joker or he thought he was the joker at the time. i want an honest answer as to why he felt he needed to kill or at least attempt to kill 200-plus people in an audience
7:04 am
at a movie. >> do you ever feel like you'll get that explanation? >> probably not. >> reporter: that may be for the best, says this victim. he was hit by a shot from a pistol in the arm and from a rifle in the leg. doctors have hold him he will never walk the same way again. >> i'm done with him, you know? i don't -- i don't need to worry about him anymore. he's gone. you know, i'm just trying to focus on my family. whatever he does, or how he reacts, won't impact me anymore. >> reporter: the overwhelming expectation is that this will be a death penalty case, but prosecutor terrell chambers have not said when that decision will be made. three people are currently on death row in colorado. one person has been executed since the death penalty was reinstated in 1975. erica, charlie? >> jeff, thank you very much. senior correspondent and former fbi official john miller is joining us now. good morning. >> good morning, charlie.
7:05 am
>> how are they going to figure out this question that still remains, motive? >> it's possible that it will take a long time or that they won't figure it out for two reasons. number one, they say they had a productive search at the apartment, which is they found items, things that may go to motive. but remember, the only one who knows the motive is the suspect. so unless he left a note that says this is clearly why i'm doing it, they have to go through the clues and hints he might have left. it's still not clear. >> from what has emerged so far, what is the most interesting things about his profile? >> to me, one of the things that is striking is less about personality and more about tactics. here is an individual who we see as kind of lolling in court, but yet who went into that theater and in actually shooting and hitting with bullets more than 52 people of the 70 injured.
7:06 am
here is a guy who went in with what we think was about 100 rounds, and that gives him a 50% hit ratio. now, from law enforcement, and you go on the range and you're shooting at a paper target, it's standing still, it waits for you, and that's a 90% to 94% hit rate in a lot of places. in combat shooting in the street, police officers often hit in ranges of 21% to 25% ofs their targets. so the idea of transitioning between three weapons he could have a 50% hit rate on moving targets in a confusing environment really goes to the idea that he's been practicing somewhere. and investigators have been to two gun ranges he tried to get in but didn't, and they are pretty sure that there is one out to that he spent time at and they are still looking for it. so are we. >> does it say anything to you, the three weapons he chose to bring? >> yeah. he chose the shotgun, which you know the expression the shotgun effect, it's blasting out. so that is the one weapon.
7:07 am
but he transitioned neatly from that to the ar-15, which had that drum magazine of 100, which we believed jammed. and he transitioned from that to the pistol until he was out of that ammunition. so he was working effectively with three weapons. >> john, thanks so much. >> thank you. this morning, joe paterno's legacy is in shreds, and penn state's football program is crippled after the ncaa dealt the university a harsh set of penalties. armen keteyian has reaction. >> reporter: good morning. the ncaa penalties, the shock waves from those penalties, are still reverberating here at penn state. literally reverberating as the last remnants of the joe paterno wall is being torn down this morning. seemingly boring a hole, yet another hole, in his legacy. the big question here, what's next? the impact of the ncaa's damning penalties leveled against penn state are beginning to sink in
7:08 am
around happy valley and beyond. >> you hurt for all of the people who have had nothing to do with any of this. a lot of dreams and things that, you know, they won't be able to realize now. >> a loss of all of -- >> reporter: many believe that the sanctions laid down will last over the next decade as a de facto death penalty. >> i cannot think of a more devastating decision made by the ncaa. >> reporter: on. >> reporter: a postseason ban for usc was only two years and a total of 30 scloips. paterno's program suffered far more. this quarterback stated, i'm not going anywhere. we are penn state forever. but a "sports illustrated" cover paints a different picture. we were penn state. north carolina coach tom o'brian put it succinctly with he
7:09 am
said -- >> they just became a aa school. >> it seemed designed to crush what mark emmert called a football first culture gone horribly wrong. it includes five years probation, four years of no bowl games, and the loss of at least 40 and as many as 80 scholarships between now and 2015. cutting the lifelines of any elite team far beyond that time frame. but for now, it appears that the team is standing together. current members of the penn state football team walked past a gauntlet of reporters yesterday without comment. but whether the famous football program can recover from the crippling sanctions remains to be seen. it's already suffered its first defection. incoming freshman defensive tackle greg webb said he would take his talents elsewhere. >> i didn't want to start school as a freshman and come into a school where people are being
7:10 am
villainized over situations that i didn't have any control in it. >> the good news, if you can call it that, is the players will be allowed to transfer immediately without penalty and retain their scholarships if they retain good academic standing. but as ncaa president mark emmert said yesterday, there is really nothing good in this situation that anyone should feel good about. with us now is ncaa president mark emmert. good morning. >> good morning. >> what was the intent of this? and what did you hope to achieve by this? >> well, the intent is fairly straightforward. but the challenge is enormous. the intent is to make sure that we keep our values straight. we play sport in america in our schools, in k-12 schools and universities, for the purpose of embedding in our youngsters the kind of core values we all associate with sport, responsibility, honestly, integrity, fair play. and when you have a sport
7:11 am
program that has cast those values aside for the values of hero worship or winninga t at a cos costs, then you have lost track of what it's all about. >> are you using penn state to send a statement to all athletic programs at all universities in the united states saying, rethink big time sports at your college. >> well, the actions of penn state itself send that message. we are reinforcing that message by saying that kind of behavior is intolerable in intercollegiate athletics. we can't stand to the side and watch the values of intercollegiate athletics be blown up in that fashion. so we want everyone to pay attention. this is indeed a cautionary tale that the athletic tail cannot wag the academic dog. >> you have talked about how the athletic cannot overshadow the academic.
7:12 am
that's easier said than done. do you believe these sanctions are going to change a football culture that is so ingrained in so many people that it's about academics in many cases? >> no, of course not. i've been a university president and been a participant in some of the most successful athletic programs in the country. so i know first hand what that looks and feels like. and this isn't about trying to hold down athletics. i am one of the biggest supporter of athletics in the country. but it is about trying to keep perspective, trying to keep in balance the sense of values that we all hold so dear in the academy. >> there's been some criticism about whether or not you have overstepped your bounds with these sanctions, because we're not looking at directly violating ncaa by-laws. how do you respond to that? >> i think again it's by saying, this case is not about any one by-law or any rule. this is about an institution that had a severe systemic loss of integrity.
7:13 am
it failed to maintain control over its athletic programs. there was no control over the ethical conduct. and we simply can't abide that. so rather than saying there's any one little specific rule that's been breached here, this is a systemic failure. >> clearly, you want to do all the things have you said, but also there must have been some sense of balance in your mind. what would be going too far and be too harsh? >> well, many people wanted us to impose the so-called death penalty, the suspension of play. the reason that i and the executive committee decided not to impose the death penalty was that it was too blunt of an instrument. it affects too many people that had utterly nothing to do with these affairs. the marching band didn't have anything to do with this. the mom and pop that's running the hot dog stand in the town didn't have anything to do with this. the rest of the institution probably had nothing to do with this.
7:14 am
we are trying to focusing the penalties where they are most likely to change the culture. we're saying to penn state, don't worry about going to the rose bowl next year. worry about getting your culture right. worry about getting your values right. and in a few years, you can worry about going back to bowl games. >> and who suffers because of what others did? >> well, everyone does. in the end, charlie, you know, there's no pretense here that this is a surgical, you know, strike here. it affects everyone. and that's the unfortunate reality of where we find ourselves. this is not a happy day for college sports. this is a very, very difficult moment. >> thank you so much. mark emmert, president of the ncaa. the presidential campaign got back into gear on monday. and mitt romney is getting ready for his first overseas visit. >> it is the kind of trip that most presidential candidates make as they establish their foreign policy credentials. jan crawford is in london this morning where romney will be heading later this week. good morning.
7:15 am
>> reporter: you know, last week, mitt romney was campaigning hard in a key swing state like ohio and pennsylvania. and this, the houses of parliament, london, is a long way from ohio and pennsylvania, but coming here in the middle of this heated election battle is a strategic move by the romney campaign. >> the world looks for american leadership. and american strength. >> reporter: that's the message romney will take on his seven-day trip to europe and the middle east. the campaign says the trip is to learn and listen, but it's also to burnish romney's credentials on foreign policy. he'll start in london, meeting with british officials, including prime minister david cameron and former prime minister tony blair. he'll also attend the opening ceremonies for the summer olympics. next, romney heads to israel, where he meets with prime
7:16 am
minister benjamin netanyahu. romney's fourth trip to israel, an important stop for jewish voters, a key constituency in the swing state of florida. then he is on to poland, another significant u.s. ally. he has been critical of president obama's handling of foreign policy, saying despite killing osama bin laden, the president has made america weaker. as he told me in may -- so great on foreign policy? >> fs across the board. >> reporter: but a fair number of americans disagree with that. in our latest poll, 47% of the americans we surveyed said they thought that president obama would do a better job of handling foreign policy. 40% chose romney. charlie and erica? >> jan, thank you. the head of the arab league said in an interview today that the time has come for syrian president bashir al assad to step down. assad's government admitted for the first time it has chemical weapons but says it won't use them against syrians who oppose assad.
7:17 am
rebel forces are concentrating in the largest cities. we have a report now on those battles. >> reporter: the battle ground, the streets and alleys of syria's largest city and its most important commercial center. the rebel syrian army says it will take over here. the government troops are determined to drive the fighters out. and the resulting extreme violence has caused thousands of civilians to flee for their lives. just over 200 miles to the south in the capital of damascus, there's a heavy troop presence after a free syrian army offensive there last week failed. the people in most neighborhoods say life hasn't returned to normal yet, but they do say they can get out and buy the essentials to survive. the events of the last couple of weeks have left syria's regime looking shaky,shaky, but there' reason to think its collapse is imminent. for "cbs this morning," i'm elizabeth palmer in beirut. it is time now to show you

7:30 am
personal audience with royalty even if this particular prince and princess are perhaps less well known than the more famous couple that live just down the road here in london. we sat dow with monaco's head of state, prince albert ii and his wife, princess charlene at their palace and afterwards we were invited along to the swimming pool. in case you missed it, there was a royal wedding last year watched by 2 billion people worldwide. the second in line to the british throne wasn't the only european prince to tie the knot last summer. just weeks later about 800 miles due south, prince albert of monaco married a former olympic swimmer from south africa. it was a glittering ceremony with celebrity guests.
7:31 am
a year on, the couple invited "cbs this morning" into their home. the 700-year-old palace perched on a cliff top above the waters of the mediterranean. may i ask how is married life? >> i think it's wonderful. i can't speak for charlene. we're having a wonderful time. >> reporter: may i ask you, how is married life? >> great. i recommend it. >> reporter: prince albert's family has ruled monaco since the 13th century. the tiny country is less than one square mile in area. what it lacks in size, it makes up for with its wealth. monaco is famous as a playground of the super rich with residents who pay zero income tax. they're not shy about showing
7:32 am
off their money. it's a big change for the former athlete whose father was a salesman. how is it being a princess? >> yeah, it's great. i don't know how to answer that honestly. what's it like being a princess? >> one second. >> reporter: at that point the prince asked for the interview to be paused. it's clear his wife is still finding her way in a very different world from the one she grew up in. the last princess of monaco and prince albert's mother was grace kelly. she brought hollywood glamour to monaco in the 1950s. the press called it the wedding of the century. your mother princess grace was an icon of beauty and style and elegance. and some people have noticed some similarities with your wife.
7:33 am
were you at all struck by their similarities when you first met? >> i think every human being is unique. that's the beauty of the human race. i knew that whoever i chose to marry, she would be compared to my mother. i was ready for that. i think charlene has her own very wonderful personal qualiti qualities. >> which qualities, may i ask, do you -- >> gosh. >> palace official decided that question was too personal. perhaps understandably given that the couple's private life is a source of constant tabloid speculation. at 54, prince albert is 20 years older than his wife dubbed a
7:34 am
"playboy" prince by the media, he fathered two children out of wed lock. when he finally decided to settle down, many in monaco heaved a sigh of relief but the wedding was marred by the rumors the bride was having second thoughts. days before the wedding, french newspapers report the bride tried to run away and fly home to south africa. then during the honeymoon there were stories that the prince and princess were staying at separate hotels. when you see those stories and hear those rumors, how do you cope with them? how do you respond? >> i really do not read anything that's printed. i think rumors -- >> reporter: the stories are nonsense to your mind? >> those rumors were completely untrue and it was very unfair.
7:35 am
we know the source and we've been able to deal with that. it was a very unfair treatment. >> reporter: princess charlene retired from competitive swimming five years ago but now she's returned to the poolside to host the south african swim team as they prepare for the london olympics. what prompted you to make such a generous gesture? >> you know, opportunity presents itself. i thought, i would offer the team to come and climatize here before london. >> one of the young swimmers will be competing against michael phelps in london. >> i think nearly every single person that i see on the street will come up to me, have you met the princess? yes. we're for monaco. we've seen her a couple times. it's been really awesome. >> reporter: the princess told
7:36 am
us that she sometimes misses competing and she loved the discipline of training long before she met prince albert this was her world. now determination that made her a champion in the pool is helping her adapt to a new job as a princess. >> everything is a process. i think with time on my side. >> that was my brush with royalty. i was surprised at how informal they were. i had to call the prince and princess your heiness but palace officials said i didn't have to curtsy. >> what is your assessment of this relationship and i'm serious about this? the sense of what it is to be in the limelight like they are. >> well, i only spent about half an hour interviewing the couple. at times they looked
7:37 am
uncomfortable but then so might many of us if we sat down and answered questions about our relationship. i certainly came away with an impression that the princess is a strong woman who wouldn't be orced into anything she didn't want to do. and who clearly is determined to do a good job in her new role as princess. >> holly williams, thank you so much. a pioneer space traveler has died. sally ride was america's first woman in space. we'll look back at her historic career which all began when she answered a want ad in the paper. you're watching "cbs this morning." hi parents, big year for spelling. here's what the kids will n-e-e-d. ♪ pens and markers, paper wide ruled. ♪ ♪ hoodies, sneakers, tape, sticks of glue.♪

timothy geithner told me last night in an interview that president obama is absolutely committed to letting tax cuts for the wealthiest americans expire at the end of the year. lawmakers begin debate this week on the future of the bush era tax cuts. they expire on december 31st. house republicans want to extend tax cuts to all income levels but geithner says the president is committed to make sure that does not happen. >> if the president were to say i'm prepared to extend taxes for top 2% of americans, it's a deeply irresponsible thing to do fiscally and economically now. if you do it, it cost a trillion dollars over ten years, which we don't have and we won't go out and borrow from other countries to support in that context. >> we'll have more of my extensive interview ahead in the next hour including his view on the impact of the european debt crisis.

8:16 am
went on "meet the press" and said if nsa turns listening ears on the u.s., we would cross to where there was no going back from. fast forward to 9/11, they turned the giant listening ears in and we became possible suspects. our phone calls, e-mails, all of that stuff, there's a reason the national security agency has outgrown its facility and had to spend $2 million to build a new one out in the desert. every day, you, me, our children, anyone that has anything plugged in is tracked and that data is stored, sifted and analyzed. i'm a law and order guy. i love when technology gets used to nail bad guys. what i don't want it to be used for is to track what i'm doing and what you're doing and say
8:17 am
wait a second, is he possibly going to do something wrong. >> what would you recommend to make sure that doesn't happen? >> it's very difficult. my kids eventually will want to get into social media. i don't want them in that sphere. one of the things that i am going to do for my children is set up fake accounts under fake names. their friends can know that my kids are not really sally doe and bill doe but there's a lot of different things that exist out there. part of what you have to do as a parent is really train your kids that is permanent. that's not footprints in the sand. that's outside of the movie theater in cement. >> you paint a scary picture especially for a lot of people sitting at home saying i'm on facebook and now the government will come after me. >> it's the best thing the government -- you could do for the government is put your relationships on facebook. >> they know where to find you. you get a lot of your information by talking to people in the government. you're part of this homeland security program called the
8:18 am
analytic red cell program. do you think maybe i shouldn't know that now even if it's background for a book. >> the rule when i got asked to participate in the program which after 9/11 when dhs was stood up, they said let's bring creative thinkers in from outside of d.c. to help us war game what the next terrorist attack might look like so we don't have a failure of imagination again which was one of the things the 9/11 commission said was the reason 9/11 happened. i say the red cell program is las vegas of the government. what happens in the red cell program stays in the program. how i come up with creative is the way i do for the novels so i don't use anything that's in there for the books. >> you do speak to other people. >> what's interesting is you can see a pivot in my last three books. i actually -- because my books are popular in d.c. in the intelligence community and
8:19 am
department of defense and white house and other places, i have people i'll see in d.c. for dinner and say i'm not supposed to tell you this but you need to look at this subject because they're concerned about it. government is almost not a collection of individuals, it's like its own entity. a living, breathing thing that gets fatter and fatter and fatter. there are good people in d.c. concerned with where the country is headed. as you know leon panetta said the next pearl harbor may be from cyberspace. >> that's a big concern. we're so dependent on the int internet that if we lost it and we've seen data that suggests that chinese would like to take away our ability to use the internet. the chinese are creative. >> you have seen data from where? >> let me put it this way. there's an interesting white paper that was done for the department of defense after the 2008 financial collapse and there were also papers done after the northeast blackout.
8:20 am
>> done by? >> done by private contracting groups. private organizations for the government that studied the data around the electrical grids collapsing during the blackout suggesting there were chinese hackers inside the system mapping our system and somebody tripped something. this is something the u.s. government does not want out there. does not want to be talking about very much because technically there are people that could say that's an act of war. chinese don't belong anywhere inside our internet infrastructure in the united states to be mapping it but they are actively mapping it and that's part of what i bring up in the book. i'm a beach read. have a great white knuckle edge of your seat thrill ride but if you walk away feeling like i learned something or i'm going to look into this more. >> do you assume we're doing the same thing to the chinese. >> i hope we are. when it comes to american security, i'm very passionate. i very much hope we are doing that. >> great to have you here. the book is called "black list." it goes on sale today.

>> welcome back to "cbs this morning." i sat down with treasury secretary timothy geithner with wide ranging conversation about the economy and challenge of the european debt crisis and fiscal challenge that is coming up, the fiscal cliff, and we talked about that and other things including recent criticism of him. what is driving the confidence factor in the american economy? >> there are two clouds over us. one is the impact of europe on growth here and around the world and concerns about how they manage this crisis and the second is a broader concern about whether the political intuitions of the country are going to find a way to move again, to govern again, become unstuck and do things that are good for the economy in the short run and long run. >> what's the role of this administration in the european debt crisis? >> what we have done from the beginning is worked very, very hard with european leaders mostly in private to try to bring them together and support a more powerful set of reforms
8:31 am
to restore stability and get growth stronger and put in place a more durable set of institutions to make monetary union work. >> some say that merkel believes she can always come in and rescue at the last moment and that's her operative philosophy. >> the balance is very important. if you leave europe on the edge of the abyss as your source of leverage, your strategy is unlikely to work because you'll raise the cost of the crisis more expensive to fix and you'll do a lot of damage to politics of those countries because the human costs of what's happening not just in greece but across europe now are enormously high and you see that reflected in much more political extremism and huge really remarkable levels of deprivation for what were modern mature economies. >> what happens if you have tax increases, spending cuts, and a huge defense cut that scares what happens to the american
8:32 am
economy if the administration and the congress cannot come to some bargain on this? >> it would cause a lot of damage to the economy. >> tell me what that means. a recession? >> many people look at this and say, yes, you would at least get a recession. >> that's what the chairman of defense says. >> the cumulative size of those cuts, tax increases and spending cuts are very, very large. >> that's the reason they made them in the first place it would be so painful that people would try to make the agreement. how damaging depends on whether people believe it's a quick, short-term stalemate that will get resolved very quickly or they need more time to do that. it's hard to know that people would view this as something that washington is going to be able to heal and repair quickly. >> and the question then is why are you optimistic that this time you'll have a different result than you did last time? >> because i don't believe it is tenable to put the country
8:33 am
through what we went through last august. i don't think it's possible for us and responsibility for the elected leaders of the nation to try to defer these things indefinitely. i think both options are unatenable. to defer is untenable given how consequential these changes are and you see people struggle with realism about what's necessary. >> there's a new book written by neil barofsky that suggests while the t.a.r.p. program was necessary to deal with a possible financial collapse, the foreclosure part of that was not properly administered. you were not as enthusiastic about that as you should have been. >> obviously i don't share those -- >> what would you say to him to say you got it wrong. >> let's go to the substance of the basic debate. if you look back to that time, we talked about this a lot, you
8:34 am
had an american economy falling off the cliff, shrinking at the end of 2008. you had a financial system where you face a real prospect of banks failing across the country and people pulling money out of banks and complete collapse. it's like the power grid going dark for a long period of time. and what we did are things you would never want to do. you never want to have to do. with the authority congress gave two administrations and alongside a very aggressive and creative reserve including when i was there and with the recovery act force that congress authorized, we pulled the economy back from the abyss, stabilized the system and got the economy growing again and those things were absolutely necessary. there were no alternative. nothing would have been possible without those basic actions but many people looked a the that the and felt it was unfair and unjust. >> you said in a conventional way you bailed out wall street but you didn't bail out main
8:35 am
street. >> our job was to protect main street, the average economy, from the failures of the financial system. that's what we did. that's a just and necessary thing. to let it burn would have been much more damaging to main street, the average american, than what we did. this is very important. remember, people saw the spectacle of the government doing things we had never done before, putting hundreds of billions of dollars into the banking system. but it's important to recognize that we are going to earn a positive return to the taxpayer on those investments we made. >> he raises this question was tim geithner too friendly to the banks. >> i'm deeply offended by that. i find that deeply offensive. you know, it's the result of an urban myth significantly. a lot of people thought and wrote in publications of record that i spent my life at goldman sachs rather than as a public servant which is what i did in
8:36 am
my life. i thought it was a private bank rather than firestation of the financial system. people were deeply misled about the basic choices we faced and the alternatives we confront in that context. a lot of people including many critics said we went out and gave and lost trillions of dollars of the american taxpayers' money at that time. terribly damaging to the confidence. the cost of that has been damaging to the president and damaging to the integrity of the basic effort. >> a growing number of people are getting dna tested often. to find out about the family health history. this morning we'll see how

8:41 am
family secrets. or find long lost relatives. anne wojcicki got her mother and sister to take the 23 and me gene test and when anne first met tad, he somehow seemed familiar. >> anne said you remind me of my father. we may be related in some way. would you be willing to take one of my genetic tests. i said, sure, why not. >> reporter: turned out he is part of the family. a not so distant cousin. >> for me it was very special because i unfortunately lost most of my family in the holocaust. all of a sudden i have a wonderful new family. it's been a very, very emotional and thrilling experience for me. >> reporter: it's hard to beat what happened to jolie pearl. >> i had been doing family history research, genealogy research for a few years, and had developed a fairly extensive
8:42 am
family tree. >> reporter: her 23 and me results revealed the family tree had a secret branch. >> i got a notice on the computer saying, you know, you want it find your closest relative and i press a button and here's my brother. >> reporter: a brother she had never known. neil schwartzman. >> i got an e-mail from somebody who said, hey, i think you may be my brother. >> 23 and me as identified us as potential siblings. >> that was very stunning news. it rocked my world. >> reporter: over the next weeks they unraveled the story. >> she kept this secret which was terrible. just a terrible secret because it tore her up. >> reporter: their mother was pregnant with neil when their parents separated and felt she couldn't afford a second child. she kept jolie and gave up neil
8:43 am
for adoption. tell me about this first meeting. >> first thing he said to me was you're short too. >> which one of you had more questions when you were sitting together? >> her. >> you already knew you were adopted. i didn't know he existed. >> exactly. this was the end of a journey for me. for jolie, it was the beginning. >> reporter: it's a journey they are continuing together. in a lucky coincidence, neil got a job in california and now lives just a few miles from jolie. a brother and sister separated for 50 years reunited after silicon valley unlocked the secret of their dna. for "cbs this morning," john blackstone, california. >> powerful stories. examples of people following relatives or parents. personalized medicine being able to less and less expensively map

8:48 am
self-discovery knowledge with dancing. people are just really into dance these days. >> this is a fourth one. they are already talking about a fifth one. >> i said it would have to be done in space or maybe i said we should do swim up about synchronized swimming. >> it would be timely to get that done in time -- >> for olympics. that's what i was thinking. >> how do you talk people into getting involved? tom cruise in "rock of ages." >> they want to be a part of something. i tend to do joy. i don't do heavy. i'm into joy. i do very uplifting material. sometimes people want to be a part of it, you know. that's the only thing i can explain. >> they like winning franchises too. >> that never hurts. you brought "rock of ages" and tom cruise which you directed over the summer. didn't do as well as people thought at the box office. what was that like for you? >> it was weird.
